Re: thomas Thackeray - Yorkshire
Thank you for your information. It is almost certain that Thomas was the brother of my Great grandfather Edward whohad a boarding house at Beverley. His family are as follows John,George,Arthur,Edward,Alf,Jim,Fred,Mary,Annie,Fanny, Ginnie and Millie. Several of Edwards family still live in Beverley.
The Thomas you mention is almost certainly the one who lived at Weel on a barge and whose family ran the Inn at Warne. Both Warne and weel are accross the river Hull from Thearne. Most of the side of the family settled in Hull and Beverley.One of the grandsons Peter drives a taxi in Beverley. when I was young (I am now 70)I visited the Thackerays on the barge several times and it was one of the daughters or grand daughters who took me to school when I ws five. On the UK web site re family united their are several Thackeray's in Beverley (non from my side of the family) noting Thackeray's born in Beverley in the late 1800s and early 1990s who I am sure are decendents from the Thackeray's from Weel
